    Default Re: Field Text vx Regular Text File Size

    I'd say because of the hyperlinks, .html and .rtf properties - or at least
    the data required to generate those.
    If you don't need any special formatting, you can always generate your text
    members on the fly, or keep them empty and set their text at runtime - the
    test can be stored in a field member.
